The Narrow Way

Do you know God’s Love?

His Righteousness,

His Grace?

Do you hold steadfast each day

to the narrow way?

Do you have a clue

about the dear price Christ

paid for me & you?

Keith & Lorrie (1989)

Keith and Lorrie’s Love story

I’ve heard it many times

It came flooding back

fresh to my mind tonight

As I heard Lorrie singing in his memory,

& of what seeing him again might

be like, what I saw when I looked

into her eyes is the pain of his loss is

still fresh to her as if it were still 1989

The year Keith left this world behind

That Summer

He’s always been a little of the restless kind

Never slowing down, always running wild

if he stopped, then in the quiet of the night

he’d have so much on his mind

Like, the long hot Summer when he was 17

Down in Alabama ‘neath evergreens

That Summer he met the woman of his dreams

She stood only 5 ft. 3, her heart was pure

and her mind was keen, their Love was real

but the world got mean, tore them apart

like a scene from a Shakespearean tragedy

When life is running you ragged

Driving you to madness

It can be the simplest things

that help bring peace to your day

Sometimes the profound

Can be found in the words

that children say


“I Love You, Daddy,

Do you want to play”

It reminds us that life’s not

about working it all away

It’s about the Love that we give,

the bonds that we make

Together Forever

He’d emblazon her name on the town water tower

Pick her an arrangement of fresh, sweet, flowers

Take her to dinner & dancing for hours,

To the town, it seems now,

they’ve been together forever

When they met he went all out w/the grand

romantic gestures, and to this day

he always treats her like he’s still trying to get her,

shows her his Love in every

way within his power
